Games are remarkable in that they can make repetition enjoyable. Whether it’s jumping in Mario or running missions in XCOM, games are capable of warping tedious activities into engaging ones. Urban Empire, however, somehow makes the exciting world of administrative approval so mundane tha- eh, […]

Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA Future Tone
